The Nigerian Navy has sent a strong warning to criminals and groups impersonating its service personnel, an act it says has become a reoccurring one within the coastal states of the country, emphasising that it has  taken measures to checkmate the activities of the imposters as their activities have greatly dented the image of the Nigerian Navy.

In a statement issued on Tuesday by Director of Information, Commodore Christian Odogwu Ezekobe, the Navy also said that “pseudo organisations that go by the names, Nigerian Merchant Navy, Merchant Naval Force and Nigerian Sea Scout among others have sprung up, deceived and recruited unsuspecting civilians, dressed up in Nigerian Navy uniforms and parading themselves as personnel.”

It also disclosed that in this year alone, about 16 persons have been arrested with the most recent been the case of one Mr. Sunday Livinus Anaefo who was arrested while on illegal escort duties along Ibafon-Victoria Island axis in Lagos. Also one Mr. Ukaegbu Lucky was arrested at Agbara general area of Ogun State for posing as a Nigerian Navy personnel.

“Additionally, in a recent raid conducted by operatives of the Nigerian Navy in Badagry area, the camp of one illegal group that goes by the name Merchant Naval Force was discovered and dismantled. The action was sequel to reports of criminal extortion, intimidation and harassment of unsuspecting members of the public including agents of government by ‘supposed’ naval personnel in the area.

“In view of the current security challenges in the country associated with militancy, cult related activities, banditry, piracy, sea robbery, kidnapping and other unwholesome activities, the Nigerian Navy will henceforth massively crackdown on any group that poses as a security risk to the maritime domain and its own operations.”

These observations on the criminal activities of imposters, the Navy said, bring to fore the urgent need to advice parents and guardians to warn their children and wards not to fall into the temptation of impersonating personnel of the Nigerian Navy or enlisting as members of these illegal organisations by whatever name they are called, as the service will henceforth use the required lawful means to crackdown on them wherever they are found.
